Unwelcoming and unfriendly on arrival, we booked but were the only people in all night, that tells you something on a Friday. The food was badly cooked and seemed to be out of packets. We had starters and a mains and we left food, we were going to have desserts but we're so underwhelmed we left. It wasn't cheap for... More

We visited here as a group of friends this evening for a meal, the place itself is quite basic in appearance however there was a warm and friendly welcome. The menu was quite varied with some unusual dishes on. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals and were really impressed. The T-bone steak was cooked beautifully and the home cooked chips... More

Dirty pub, we went in because it was somewhere we could take dogs we was on holiday near by landlady very unfriendly local stood at bar just staring. We had food which was definitely not worth the money worst pub I've ever been in.

This pub was close to three wells hotel so we decided to give it a try. On arrival the tables in the bar were reserved, the landlady invited us in to sit by the log fire while she heated the restaurant. After a game of pool and a drink we enjoyed a good meal, the homemade sausages were tasty .... More

Called in to the local pub whilst we were staying in the area. Only the landlord and a local person in. No conversation made with us. Sat in the window and noticed a collection of dead wasps. Following day, called in again. Same lack of atmosphere and the dead wasps were still in residence. Shame as it would have been... More
